The Collegiate Church of Santa Maria Assunta in Cielo is the last masterpiece of Gian Lorenzo Bernini, who designed every architectural detail including the furnishings. The shape is reminiscent of the Pantheon, a round plan with portico and cupola.

The paintings and frescoes make it a baroque masterpiece.

The remains of the previous church, demolished in 1665 were incorporated into the church of St. Nicholas.
